Unhappy Motorcycle Rider Fatality in Shoreline

https://komonews.com/news/local/moto...v-in-shoreline

SHORELINE, Wash. - A motorcyclist was killed in a collision with an SUV Thursday morning in Shoreline, sheriff's officials said.

Deputies and medics responded to the scene, near the entrance to the Home Depot in the 1300 block of North 205th Street, at about 8:25 a.m. after receiving reports of a serious crash, said Ryan Abbott of the King County Sheriff's Office.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Abbott said the motorcyclist collided with a Dodge Durango, but the circumstances leading up to the crash are still under investigation.

Several recent crashes have been high speed passing and someone turns left in front. Be careful, it's spring, rusty skills are as bad as being a new rider!

Keep the paint side up!

Ape hangers and a front skinny don't help much on a left turning car.
But, at least the clothing company put a front disc brake on that one...

A rider died. Dissing the bike after the fact is not really called for. You have no idea if that contributed to the crash at all.

discussing the elements after an accident..especially if someone died..is of the utmost importance...taking a swipe at the clothing company was uncalled for at this time without all of the important elements being known...
it is a fact that a small front tire like that isn't going to stop a big heavy harley very well...we don't know if that lack of braking ability led to this crash and may never know...

-----------

Someone will know. In the case of fatal or near fatal crashes, law enforcement dispatches a crash analysis team. They are well versed in scene reconstruction and will be able to clearly identify all the variables including fault and whether or not any action could reasonably have been taken to avoid the outcome. Citations may be issued. Lawyers and insurance companies will bicker. Fault will be assigned and maybe, just maybe, some justice will prevail. Bottom line is that another rider died.
